Hear From Our Students

“The overall experience at the course was excellent. Communication was always prompt and clear. There were no delays or lack of effort in creating a course or getting me on a load to train. Examples and lessons were detailed and focused.

What stood about the course was the level of communication. The fact that my emails are answered by the end of day every day does not seem to exist anywhere else. I mentioned this to Bram while there and will continue to tell everyone I know who asks about ratings.”

Skydiving is not easy and the training to become a coach or other instructor should not be easy or cursory. The time, detail, and patience shown during my Coach course is why I will be back to Skydive Ratings the next time I am ready to progress. The site, the training aids, the comprehensive experience and knowledge of the instructors are exactly what I was and will look for.

I took the coach course with Skydive Ratings in Zhills. Dario was the instructor and he did an amazing job. He was thorough, interactive, and knowledgeable. I’ve taken other courses in the past and this one was easy to follow and the time flew by. They really care about the students and the sport in general to make it a good experience for everyone. They also promote great DZ habits and want to see students succeed.


The SR Team is the best in the business and came highly recommended from many people when I got ready for the coach course. Cannot encourage you strongly enough to consider the new Coach Pre-Course training they have. It was invaluable and helped smooth the way for a better learning experience in the actual course. Bram is tough but fair – exactly what you want in an examiner. No short cuts here!

The staff are professional and conduct themselves in a manner that is both functional and endearing. They make you want to become the best version of yourself. Thanks for a great IAD course!

I came to zhills to do my coach course last week with Skydive Ratings. I walked in with no expectations (except to hopefully get my coach rating ) and what I found was one of the most challenging 3 days of my life! I learned so much and was pushed and challenged the whole time. Our instructors were some of the best people I’ve ever met and the information they knew and passed to us was mindblowing! At times I was knocked down and felt like I wasn’t going to make it and by the end I was so confident and ready to help and put to action everything! Thank you Bram and Dario for the best class. I wouldn’t go anywhere else but to them for any future rating I want! Thank you for everything! I’m so excited to be the best coach to all the future baby birds !


I used Skydive Rating for my coach rating. I knew when I finished that I would be back for my AFFI rating. The staff at Skydive ratings is top tier. They honed my skills and gave me the knowledge needed to be a successful instructor. I would recommend Skydive ratings to anyone who wants quality, intuitive, and practical instruction.
